Ginny, that sounds like a pleasant surprise.

Julie, enjoy your snowy weekend.

It is so nice to be feeling good again. Probably shouldn't have, but helped hubby rake leaves this afternoon. The dog took the opportunity to run around in the lake bottom and get covered in cockle burs, which had to be cut out. She is a sad looking puppy now. If it warms up tomorrow she will have to have a bath and good brushing.

I met a friend for breakfast this morning. It was good to see Susan and catch up on whats happening.

It looks like our snow has started. We are supposed to get 6-9 inches over the rest of the weekend. I am not planning on going anywhere the rest of the weekend.

Have a good weekend.

Stopped by a monthly quilting circle to see if I could find a local quilting buddy. We then went to the local high school for a craft fair.

Oops we went to the wrong high school and ended up watching a dance show of the Nutcracker which our neighbor's child was in. Unexpected surprise.

We did make it to the other high school and browsed the local crafts. Ready for a nap now.

Enjoy your snow, Julie. I do hope we get some this year. The grands have been talking about the year we built snow forts.

Our high was only 38, but we managed to get in 2 nice walks today. No new visitors, but the cat was happy to come in tonight.

I picked up oldest grand at school. Since he didn't have any homework for the weekend. So I found work for him to do around the house. Hopefully he can stay on the bus till the end of the year, if only to avoid housework.

They are predicting between 6 and 12 inches of snow for us over the weekend. Hope to have plenty of time to sew. Haven't had time since Monday.

Bev, It sounds like you are feeling better. Hope the results of your ultrasound come back good.

We met with our lawyer to day to go over our trust. We do this every other year, but they keep everything updated as needed.

DH is hanging my new picture selves for me. That means I will have to find the dining room table by putting things back on the main book selves.

Have a good afternoon.

Carol, enjoy your cruise.

Today hubby and I are feeling much better. I managed a nice walk, even in the cold. This evening DH went to close up the garage and this little fellow was finishing off the cat's dinner.

It took a while, but he finally wandered off.

Had my liver ultrasound today and hope to hear something tomorrow. Sure do wish they would check records before asking questions. Then they would know 1) yes, I have been here before 2) yes, I have had an ultrasound 3) no, I don't have a gall bladder 4) yes, these are all related.

I don't enjoy it, but I've tried basting a quilt on a table, and I can never get it tight enough. My DH laughs at the same time calling me masochist whenever I have a quilt to baste.

Now I have to figure out how to quilt it. Hahaha - I have time.

I the meantime I just heard another niece is getting married so I have to start planning her quilt. As a vet, I think it will have lots of domestic animals on it. Thinking of dogs, cats and trying to gather up some patterns to make different blocks.

Spent the evening crawling all over the floor basting a quilt top for another nephew who just got engaged. Ahh my aching back.

Bev, I hope you are feeling better.

Our weather here has gotten much colder, today was only in the 20's.

We just went and did a little shopping.

Mom is improving but is not cooperating with the PT techs. The plan is to move her back to here assisted living under hospice care. Hospice will take a lot of pressure off my brother.

I started doing some cleaning. I have a big pile of books covering my dining table.

Have a good evening.

Bev, I hope your prescriptions stop messing with you and you start feeling better. Oh, grandkids, you've got to love them but sometimes things are trying. And yep, the younger one usually does start it and seems to get away with it. (of course, this grandma and grandpa are the oldest--so we are usually on the side of the oldest).

Julie, good your brother is able to be with your mom some.

Towhee--It's about time for our Costco run too! ;)
Have a good day all.

Carol, I think that would work for samples, too.

Julie, she probably recognizes your brother and calms down a bit.

Today was not a good day. Couldn't sleep last night, freezing cold, cramps, and other things we won't get into. Haven't felt like eating today, didn't even drink my coffee this morning. That is probably due to the antibiotics, they are really icky. Took a short walk this morning just to get outside, and did finish the other half of the binding on the tee shirt quilt, but that is about all.

DD called and oldest grandson has been kicked off the bus for 5 days for hitting youngest grandson yesterday. Youngest started it (usually does) but that part wasn't witnessed by the bus driver. Sigh. So now I will have to pick him up after school, she will have to take him in the mornings.

Have been having an OK day, dealing with mom from a distance. It sounds like she had a rough night, but things are settling down while my brother is with her. They have a safety person staying in her room when family is not there now. She will be going to rehab from the hospital as long as she is willing and able to participate.

We did a little running around and now going to relax until I need to leave for quartet.

Take care everyone.

Julie, sorry about your mom. Dementia/Alzheimer's is a terrible disease. It's so hard for us to watch them go downhill and you have to wonder if deep down they understand what is happening.

Bev, thanks for the answer on WOP. I'd heard of WIP but WOP threw me off.

Have a good Wednesday all.

Julie, I am so sorry to hear about your mom. I'm sure all this is very confusing to her.

TOWHEE, there are a lot of good youth out there, they just don't get the spotlight much.

Heard from my Dr today. Liver enzymes have changed, so they want another ultrasound Thursday. Diverticulitis is better, still a bit tender and on low residue diet.

My cousin had a mule she kept in my dad's pasture. Sunday night sometime he got out and my cousin found him and put him in her pasture. This morning she found him dead. He was well over 30 and had lived the last 6 years being a wonderful pet for my dad. We will certainly miss Bubba.

Saturday we provided communications for our county's annual food drive. It keeps getting better each year. There were a lot of teens at our sight and I really enjoyed being with them. They certainly improved my impression of this younger generation.

Sunday we went and got our Christmas tree. We usually get a Noble Fir, but this year we settled on a Douglas Fir.

Monday it snowed about an inch. Since we live on a steep hill we didn't go anywhere. In the evening I worked on the stockings for the hospital maternity ward. Eight are done and there's about an hour of stitching left to finish the last two.

Today we made our bi-monthly Costco run. We were out of just about every thing. Tonight I'll finish the last two stockings and take them to the hospital tomorrow.

Julie, sorry to hear about you Mom. I have a PPS member who is going down hill fast also. I still pick her up for luncheons, but I don't know how long I can continue to do so.

Well Disney gave me a 2 pound weight gain. I did expect it so no surprise there. Did well over Thanksgiving....lost 2 so I guess I am even.

Today it has been a bit stressful. My mom has dementia and has been going down hill. It has been a difficult time for my brother who is charge of moms care. Mom lives in a memory care assisted living but at this time requiring more care then the assisted living can provide. Dave has set up for a private company to come in and help take care of mom and things had been improving. Last night mom fell out of bed and broke her hip. She has had surgery and was resting comfortably so my brother was heading home to get some sleep. I live about 8 hours away so unable to help much. We are going over for a few days around Christmas, but if needed will go over earlier.

Spent most of the day running around. We left home around 9:15 for a dentist appointment. Then we went and got lunch, stopped at the local quilt shop and then stopped at the feed mill to buy corn for the sheep,

I have been relaxing and knitting since we got home.

I hope everyone has had a good day.

Julie

Enjoy your cruise, Carol.

I have spent the day doing - nothing. Went to the Dr this and had blood work done, got my prescriptions for my diverticulitis, came home and have spent the day listening to it rain. Tomorrow will be better, I hope.

Hope you feel better soon... Stomach issues seem to really make themselves heard! emoticon
A week ago, I started to get a head cold (swollen glands, etc). I was somewhat able to hold it off w/ several self-treatment tools. However, while teaching on Friday, I felt more & more "under the weather". Seems like it landed full force this weekend. -- I'm on herbs 3x's a day and still able to eat fairly well. Still trying to figure out if I should head in to work Mon. AM?!

Forecast is for rain/snow mix. -- If it freezes, we are in for a big mess in the AM. Currently rain showers & 35 degrees.

Well, today has been interesting. Last night I was FREEZING and wrapped up in my fleece couch sack. This morning a friend came and got DDs car to replace the finder and DH got up with an upset stomach. I was just feeling "not right". Got the car back, DH medicated and went to work, DD came and got the grands, and I figured out it's my diverticulitis flaring up again. I keep some meds, so started those and will have to call Dr in the morning. It has been years since it has bothered me, so guess I have gotten lax in my diet. We have eaten a lot of tomatoes, squash, and sunflower seeds this week, so it's my own fault. Back on the low residue, bland diet.

On a brighter note, we have had a light rain almost all day.

That's one thing about retirement - if you don't feel like doing something to, there's always tomorrow.

Winter has finally arrived here in Wisconsin. I woke up to snow cover ground and it hasn't stopped. We have about 4 inches on the railing now and it is still snowing.

We have lost our satellite connection for the tv so going to watch a movie.

I found myself thinking I needed to get something done today, but then remembered I have all week to do it.

I did finish a non quilting UFO today I finished sewing my braided rug.

Have a good afternoon.

Carol, I like the mobile app, too. In someways it is much easier to use.

Julie, sounds like you are enjoying your vacation already. Good for you.

Tomorrow we re expecting 2-4 inches of rain, and perhaps some wind. We are on the border of the severe/thunderstorms, so hopefully it will be just rain. Carol you may get some your way.

Thanks for the app information. Today I have been tracking my food and I think I am going to have to break down and finally do this. When I went to England, I paid $40 to ATT to be able to use my phone over there. Well worth it. Not sure will bother on the cruise though. In England I was able to keep up with my husband and flight times etc. Carol

I am enjoying my day so far.

One of our favorite places to go is a historical site called World World Wisconsin. This morning we went to a Christmas breakfast there. The food was great and I probably ate way to much. It was little cold to go wondering the village, so we went to the gift shop so DH could get a book he was looking for then came home.

Stopped at a knitting store in Cambridge, WI and bought a set of knitting needles I need for a project. Hope to start the mittens soon.

Going to relax a while then may go get groceries.

Have a great day.

Julie.

Yes Carol, I use the spark app for tracking on my phone. It works well. Doesn't show fiber in the charts but you can always check that on computer. The nice thing about it is if you have a new food, you use your camera to "scan" the bar code and most of the time the info is in there and it will put it in your tracking. If you're asking because of the cruise, you don't want to be using your phone on a cruise ship unless you're planning on buying internet. At sea phone use is VERY EXPENSIVE!

Julie, enjoy your first weekend retired!

Congrats Julie! emoticon You can sleep in this morning but I bet you are up and at'em ready to get to that quilt! I am sewing today. I have a quilter lined up to quilt my granddaughter's quilt that I vow to finish by Thursday. It's about 1/4 done. Think I'll make it? Its pretty simple straight piecing so in between the mystery I can do it. Carol

If you are sewing binding it may be a combination of the thick layers and speed. If I'm sewing my binding down I have to go slower than usual.

I have started Julie's party, everyone come by and enjoy. Let's see if we can keep it going all weekend. Julie, love the Whisper pattern, can we send you any fabrics to use?

I need help ladies. Last night and tonight I've been having issues with needles breaking. I've checked everything and still cannot figure out what is happening. Can they be breaking over the thickness of the thread? My newer machine doesn't seem to be the work horse my old machine was which had no problem going over the thickness. The new machine is a pansy. I was using 80/12.
Like I said, I've had no problems until last night. I've just switched over to 90/14 to finish the binding to see if this will do the job.
Any suggestions?

Julie--congrats on your retirement. I bet you will have fun working on your new quilt kit.

I thought I was going to have a very low key Christmas this year, but that all changed yesterday when I found out that my brother and his wife plan to come this way for the holiday. They will be staying with us plus I'm going to have his son (my nephew and his wife and friend) over for Christmas dinner. I haven't seen my brother for several years so it should be a really nice time. I'm going to be happily busy preparing over the next few weeks.

I had a nice last day at work. I mainly puttered and reviewed a few data packets. Our two departments went together for a retirement party for us. Instead of cake and ice cream we had cookies and ice cream.



Never thought I would see my likeness in a cookie.

Before we went out for dinner we stopped to look for new glasses for DH, once he picked out a frame I walked over to quilt shop and I bought myself a retirement quilt to make. The pattern is called Whisper. I thought it was so relaxing to look at. DH thought it looked like a water fall.

Looking forward to retirement.

Have a good evening.

Julie

Our weather is getting colder. There were some snow flakes in the rain last night.

I had a long day at work today but I got my desk pretty much cleaned out so I won't have anything to bring home tomorrow.

How about virtual fabric, I could use any thing but reds and pinks. I did a quilt with 120 different red and pink stars.

Bev, I so glad your family came through the storms safely.

Have a good evening.

Well, there ended up being 3 tornadoes that passed by my parent's farm. No damage, thank goodness. The storms made it to my area around 10 this morning. Rained so hard we couldn't see 50 feet. So nice to have rain again.

Congrats Julie.....
I will bring Fruit Salad to the party.

Yes holidays are sometimes not happy...2003 I lost my Dad on December 20 and we buried him on the 23 RD. Had to make the decision wait to after Christmas or do before. Didn't want to remember Christmas as waiting to bury Dad. Took years to get back into Christmas. Dad loved Christmas! So now I try to do it well in his memory!

We should send Julie fat quarters to celebrate just need her address! PM the address and let us know color choice! That would be fun? Could fit a regular number 10 envelope and cost next to nothing!v

Scraps for Julie, great idea. What colors do you need Julie?

In Alabama with rain comes storms. The north west corner is getting tornadoes, there is one near my parents. I'll call in a bit and check on them.

The tornado went west of them, so the farm is good. There is another round coming so they are sleeping in the basement.

Bev, so glad you finally got some rain. It rained here all day yesterday but today it was beautiful: sunny and in the 50's.

I was up at 4 am for my last training session with Nickie at 5 am. We will be meeting at 8 am for the next couple of weeks then probably 7 am. I will still have my 5 am group workout on FRI but I can come home and relax after.

We met with our financial planner today to set up getting money from our retirement accounts. I think the next few months will be interesting getting things set up the way we want.

Have a good evening.

Julie

You are right Carol. The holidays are always bad. My friend's father passed away early this morning. Looks like I will be working a lot this week so she can take care of details. She has a brother in Puerto Rico and her dad had 8 siblings still living that want to come. It will be Friday before they can all get here, so she will be off all week. I'm working on my laundry tonight so I can go to visitations tomorrow.

We do have a bit of good news, looks like we can get replacement parts for oldest DDs car (she has liability only insurance) and it will be less than $200. May not be a perfect paint match, but will have to do. Her insurance will pay for youngest's car repairs up to $25,000. I'm sure a bumper won't be that much.

I had nice day doing laundry, knitting and spinning.

DH just got home from deer hunting going to go help with chores. We have some indoor pens for the sheep so we need to check water and feed them.

Tomorrow starts our last week of work. We both retire on Friday.

Have a good week.

It seems like the Holidays are always a time when people lose family members. My husband works in the local funeral home and it is always busy at this time of year. Carol

If it is something I may use for a backing I get 5 yards, otherwise I get 2 or 3.

Well, today was a bad day in general. Two of our family friends lost grandmothers this morning, the lady I fill in for had to take her dad to the hospital and he is not doing well (so I'll be working this week) the catfish my grandson wanted to catch died and the buzzards cleaned him up, and my DDs had their first wreck in my drive way (oldest hit youngest's car). In between all this the grands got my Christmas tree put up for me and all the supplies for the porch so I can decorate it tomorrow. I do hope tomorrow is better.

If you find a fabric you love, but don't know what project you'll use it for at that moment, how much yardage do you generally buy?

I seriously need an intervention on sorting and storing fabric. It has taken over my dining room, living room, foyer, hallway, spare bedroom and sewing room. This has to stop. If anyone has any tips or tricks, please post under Taming our Scraps! I need help. Carol

Today I barely stayed in my calorie range, but I did. Tomorrow I will get back on track and increase my activity.

We have added another movie to our bad movie list. We are watching the original Journey to the Center of the Earth. Perhaps next week will be the original Godzilla.

We had a quiet but fine Thanksgiving. Not much time to sew just yet.

We had a nice day yesterday. I did pretty well with my eating. I had a spoonful of everything I wanted and limited what I had seconds on.

I got up and went to my workout at 5 am. Only 2 of the 5 of us were there, I was the only one for about 10 min. when Renee showed up.

DH and I are going to go to Farm and Fleet and then grocery shopping this afternoon. Since the temp has dropped we need a couple more heated water buckets and mineral blocks for the sheep.

Have a good day

So after thanksgiving dinner we went to Walmart to get toilet paper and 3" foam balls as I want to try the folded fabric ball. It was right before 6:00 and people were hovering over the bins to grab whatever was in them at 6:00. Never seen such a mob. The parking lot was full and we had to park as far away as possible. The aisles were packed with people and carts and TVS in the carts. Of course the foam balls and toilet paper are on opposite ends of the store but we got the balls and then went for the toilet paper. My husband was holding the toilet paper looking around for me as I went on ahead. Should have snapped a picture as he couldn't find me and I was waving at him. Got to the self-check out and was out of there in 15 min total from the time we parked till we were in the car heading home. Never shopped so fast in my life. But thought it best to get the TP last night instead of today. Carol

Our Thanksgiving was wonderful. Cousins came, everyone ate way too much. Grands rode 4 wheelers and bikes with their cousins, we played Chinese checkers and card games, and went for a nice walk.

DH and I walked to my great grandmother's old house last night. This morning he and the grands rode bikes to it and someone had dumped household trash over night. People are so sorry. He took the 6 wheeler and cleaned it up and put it on the pile of stuff for the dump.
